The Magic of Symmetry - Steve Davis

Foreword

We have called this particular thesis The Magic of Symmetry for a very specific reason. Aesthetically, the symmetrical physique is incomparable. When one of the few bodybuilders of our era who possess this elusive quality, steps on the stage, the audience seems to be held spellbound! It has an almost magical or hypnotic effect on even the untrained eye of a non-bodybuilder or female fan.

Even skin tone is important. The total sum of all these aforementioned, difficult to attain, attributes is what comprises the magic of symmetry. If a bodybuilder has truly captured these elusive qualities he will generate an amazing amount of charisma whether he steps upon the posing dais or on to the
